Matt and Jess’s wedding brought me out to the beautiful Grand Tetons, more specifically to the base of the Grand Targhee Ski Mountain in Alta, Wyoming. I arrived the day before the wedding, and once I got settled in we headed up the road to a nice scenic area for a quick portrait session at sunset. We found a really cool spot lined with aspen trees for the first look prior to the ceremony. These two picked a really cool spot for the ceremony with the alter right in front of a creek that flows along the Teton Teepee Lodge where the rest of the festivities took place. It was so much fun getting to know this awesome couple and their family and friends over the weekend. Thanks for having me along Matt and Jess, and congrats!
Neal and Jamie are a couple of friends who I was happy to provide some engagement portraits for. Q’emlin Park in Post Falls provided an awesome backdrop and lots of neat little areas to grab some portraits. We could’ve explored around there all day!
I knew destination wedding photography is awesome, but until I shot Audrey and Aaron’s in beautiful Waikiki Beach, Hawaii, I didn’t realize how truly awesome it really is. You can’t beat traveling and doing what you love and being able to call it work!
These two kept it simple and had a small ceremony in Magic Island park along the water followed by a reception dinner downtown with family and close friends. I loved so much about shooting in this area — the palm trees. The deep blue skies. Waves crashing against rocks. Gorgeous sunsets. It truly is a visual playground for a photographer there.
I want to thank my friend and colleague Jake Donahue for referring me to shoot his sister (Audrey’s) wedding out here and for Audrey and Aaron for flying me out to make it happen! It was a quick trip but a blast nonetheless.
And of course I had to snap some frames around the area for myself in which I’ll be posting sometime soon. I took my newly-acquired Canon EOS-1 film body with me and shot a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 film as well which I will get developed soon to share on my blog as well.
Congrats Aaron and Andrew, and Mahalo for having me along for the ride!
